Using biotechnology to help control and recirculate landfill by-products can mitigate costs, shorten the time needed to process solid waste, and ease the typical ecological damage to the land being used. This first-of-its-kind book provides readers with information that supports the utility of landfill biore-actors and provides design and operating criteria essential for the successful application of this technology.-- Describes the advantages of biore-actor technology -- accelerated waste stabilization rates, enhanced gas production, facilitated leachate management, volume reduction, and minimized long-term liability-- Brings together information that will help creators of future biore-actor systems benefit from the lessons gained from previous work-- Uses case studies to describe design and operation issues and to discuss the potential of landfill mining as a method to recover treated waste materials and to reuse bioreactor cells-- Provides drawings, tables, and references that aid the reader in making difficult decisions about waste management
